Born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, Leah Richardson has always had a passion for the arts. She remembers growing up and going to school with an excitement to learn everything she could about art. After having two wonderful children, Leah decided to take a leap of faith and start painting as a full time career. Her late grandmother was a trained art instructor whom she truly credits strongly for her techniques, skills, and guidance that led her to become a professional artist. Leah is inspired by her southern roots and loves to paint all things beautifully unique.
